Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: The Grateful Dead Channel on Serius?

Cliff -

I will never own a vehicle without satellite radio unless it's a horse or a bicycle. I have two channels dialed in - the Grateful Dead and Bluegrass Junction.

Can't much speak to content on the Dead channel round the clock - I have a 30 minute commute and when I am listening I seem to catch a good mix with early material and the bubble gummy 80s and beyond. One cool thing they do in the morning is a "Cover the Dead" segment where they play a half dozen songs done by other artists. Sound Tribe Sector 9 did "Shakedown" this morning that was pretty damn good. Anything Jesse McReynolds does is outstanding. Anytime Jimmy Buffet's cover of Scarlet comes on I am usually off channel within 11 nanoseconds.

Spending about 40% of the drive time on the GD channel, the rest is up on the Bluegrass Channel. 2011 is the 100th anniversary of Bill Monroe's birth and he is getting a lot of play time - which is never bad. They play a lot of Old And In The Way on Bluegrass Junction as well as the occasional Grisman-Garcia collaboration.

I wonder what the Dead could have done with Muleskinner Blues? Who would have done the yodelling?

Besides Jer trying to remember the words I mean.....

Guess youve never heard Kingfish play Muleskinner Blues, Mando?

Weir handles the yodeling just fine, and Robbie Hoddinot is more than competent on lead guitar...
